2012 Spring Friends of Hubbell Auction

An adorable model helps Hank Blair auction a small Ye'i weaving by Irene Etcitty. Please click on the picture to see it full size.

Thanks to all of the artists and bidders who made last Saturday a truly great day in Ganado. We saw lots of old friends and there were also many people attending the event for the first time. We’re still tabulating the the results, but we know that this auction once again provided welcome extra income to the artists after a long winter. Proceeds from the auction also help the Friends of Hubbell to provide scholarship money to Navajo college students and contribute to the maintenance of Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site.  You don’t even need to wait until next year for the next Friends of Hubbell auction!  The Summer Native American Arts auction will be held on September 15th.    Click here for more details.

We’ll leave you with a picture of Bruce relaxing post auction with some of the weavers who attended on Saturday.
